Detailed Breakdown

  • a) 5 Points are available for the Average Rating of all Reviews over all time. For each review the Day Nursery / service is rated Excellent, Good, Satisfactory, Poor or Very Poor on a number of areas eg Staff, Management etc. The Day Nursery receives points for each rating as follows: Excellent = 5. Good = 4. Satisfactory = 3. Poor = 2. Very Poor = 1. These points are added up and then divided by the total number of completed ratings to generate the average rating.

    The Average Rating of 4.817 for Busy Bees at Brooke Street is calculated as follows: ( (99 Excellents x 5) + (20 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 120 Ratings = 4.817

  • b) 5 Points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 12 months. If there are no Positive Reviews in the last 12 months, then 2.5 points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 2 years. A Positive Review is defined as any Review with 'Extremely Likely' or 'Likely' in answer to the question 'How likely are you to recommend this Day Nursery to friends and family?'

    The 5 points available are broken down as follows:

    1. 4 points are available for the first 5 Positive Reviews, 3 points for the first Positive Review and then 0.25 Points for each of the next 4 Positive Reviews.

    2. 1 point is available for reaching a target number of Positive Reviews based on 20% of the number of registered maximum number of service users. If the target is partially reached then that proportion of 1 point is given. eg a Day Nursery with 50 registered maximum number of service users has a target of 10 Positive Reviews, if it has 10 or more Positive Reviews it will receive 1 point, if it has 7 reviews will receive 0.7 points.

    3. If there are no Positive Reviews in the last 12 months, then 2.5 points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 2 years. The calculation is the same as above, except the points are divided by 2.

    The 3.575 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Busy Bees at Brooke Street is based on 3 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.5

    2. Target of 39.8 positive Reviews (199 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 3 Reviews ÷ 39.8 Target = 0.075

  • When a Review is submitted by someone who has previously submitted a Review, only the latest Review will count towards the Review Score.

Our daughter started nursery at aged 18 months, we were extremely worried about her settling in at this age, however, the nursery accommodated us throughout a settling in period and it was tailored to our child. She absolutely loves going to nursery and relates really well to her Key Staff in the room.
We can see what she has been learning by using the Parent Zone app and as I work away sometimes, as a parent, this really reassures me too.

My daughter has been attending Busy Bees at Brooke Street since she was 5 months old. She has an amazing bond with all staff, particularly her key person and is always happy to go to nursery. She has made leaps of progress in her development since going to nursery and having the Parent Zone app to see photos of her at nursery and receive daily information about her throughout her nursery day is brilliant. I am very pleased with the level of care and service we receive and couldn't recommend the nursery enough.

My child really enjoys nursery and the staff keep me informed of his day.
I struggle that there is a water station for my 2-year-old to help himself to a drink.
He struggles to have a full drink out of a normal cup and I have only found out he can bring a bottle.
I feel that maybe there should be set times in the morning and afternoon when they have a drink - this would still be with a drinks station still out.

My daughter has attended the setting since she was 9 months old. I have always been more than happy with her care and the learning opportunities available, her individual needs are always catered for and we are always greeted with a warm welcome. We now use the before and after school service catered for by the nursery and cannot fault this.

My granddaughter has been going to Busy Bees at Brooke Street for a couple of months. She has settled into the nursery family life very well.
The staff are amazing with her, they meet her individual needs daily.
The activities they do with her are phenomenal. She's always happy when I go and pick her up full of smiles.
Also when I pick my granddaughter up and they tell me what's she's been doing that day it puts my mind at rest knowing she's at the right nursery. Also when they tell me what she has eaten I'm very happy knowing the food is cooked and prepared on the premises and I know she's getting an amazing choice of food and nutrition also she gets her fruit and vegetables.
When I go to the nursery all the staff are very friendly and happy.
I am so happy overall, I would highly recommend this nursery to families and grandparents they make you feel at ease.

All staff are excellent. My daughter attended for 5 years. My son has now been going for 2 years and loves it. The staff have always been very supportive and go the extra mile to make sure the kids get the best care. I cannot recommend Busy Bees at Brooke Street highly enough.

Fantastic nursery, fantastic staff. My daughter has some complex additional needs and I cannot explain how amazing the team have been in adapting to these and ensuring she is included at all times. The look on my baby's face when we pull up to the front of nursery makes my heart melt, she loves every minute of her time at Brooke Street which means I can go to work and relax knowing she is happy and content. The relationship the staff have with her is so lovely to see, each and everyone of them are fab.
